2019 domaine des heritiers louis jadot, corton grand cru, les pougets

Why We're Buying

Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot Les Pougets is a case study in nuance. It offers a tapestry of rich berry flavors backed by oak, earthiness, and firm tannins. The finish is impressively long, though reserved in its crescendo. Give this grand cru red wine up to 30 years to fully come out of its shell.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is excellent, unwinding in the glass with notes of cherries, plums, orange rind, dark chocolate, sweet spices and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, it's deep and concentrated, with broad shoulders and rich, powdery structuring tannins. As usual, this is a fine proposition for the medium- to long-haul.

This domaine-owned parcel is a tradition at Jadot, who is one of the last to produce red Corton from this site. It is located mid-slope next to Le Charlemagne and most producers make white wine here. The grapes are destemmed and gently fermented to produce this bright, forward Corton which is completely unlike the slightly rustic reds of previous years. The texture is lovely, silky and very fine.

The 2019 Corton-Pougets Grand Cru was ever so slightly reduced on the nose, but opens with time to reveal quite intense black fruit laced with vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very good weight and a fine bead of acidity. This conveys the most energy of the three Corton Grand Crus from Jadot that I tasted. Velvety texture on the finish. Lovely. Just one used barrel produced.
